Live chat for Alzheimer’s caregivers
Need help managing challenging dementia-related situations while caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other memory-impairing disease? Experts from Emeritus Senior Living are holding a live chat Tuesday morning, offering candid tips for the challenges now faced by some 15 million caregivers.
Topics include how to diminish wandering, agitation, aggression, and inappropriate sexual verbal and physical behavior, as well as tips for overcoming resistance to the chores of daily living such as eating and bathing, handling continence issues and communicating with someone who doesn’t know who you are.
The chat, featuring Diana Engle, Emeritus’ memory care training specialist, will begin at 11 a.m. Tuesday. To register, go to the Live Chat link on the home page of www.emeritus.com, and enter the meeting room 15 minutes before the event begins. Questions may be submitted online during the chat, or in advance at Live.Chat@emeritus.com.
